        System.out.print("Enter a String:");
        String str=sc.nextLine();
        System.out.print("Enter the word you want to search : ");
        String searchword=sc.nextLine();
        System.out.print("Enter the new word : ");
        String newword=sc.nextLine();
        String res="";
        String []words=str.split(" "); //split the sentence into words
        for (String word : words) {
                res += newword + " ";
                res += word + " ";
        System.out.println("New Sentence will be " + res.trim());
